This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
New Mexico, southwest New Mexico, and southwest Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

An increase in low level moisture on east and southeast winds will
allow for late afternoon instability with heating and upslope flow
to create isolated showers and thunderstorms. Most of these will
be over elevated terrain of the Gila and Sacramento regions, as
well as moving into the lowlands in the early evening near the
international border into southern Dona Ana, El Paso, and Hudspeth
counties. The primary threat with any storms today will be strong
and gusty outflow winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible
Friday. These storms will be capable of producing small hail and
gusty, erratic winds. Beyond Friday, dry westerly flow will warm
the region to temperatures 3-8 degrees above seasonal averages,
the region will become quite dry, and winds will be occasionally
breezy in the afternoons. However no critical weather is expected.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
